An account of the rites and ceremonies observed at
elephant driving operations in the sea-
board province of lang suan,
southern siam.

Introduction.

          1. The preparation of this paper describing an elephant drive to the kraal or keddah in the province of Langsuan, required a laborious enquiry amongst the hunters in that province. These men are loth to divulge any of the secrets of their craft. They hold that the "Mantras" are the pivot around which the whole operation of elephant hunting revolves, and are sacred. Mantras should not be heard by vulgar ears or read by vulgar eyes. It was with the greatest difficulty that I obtained a copy of the mantras used. These are written in archaic language, and most difficult to translate, being a mixture of Siamese, Cambodian, Pโli, and Sanskrit. It is probable that my translation is not good, but still, whatever its faults may be, the reader will get the sense.
